The Lord has used this book, to teach me to draw near to him with the pen. The writer, Lynn Morrisey, encourages us to pour out our hearts to him, tell him everything, then let it rest in his hands. The stories she tell, just leaves you feeling so much closer to God, as you begin, to write your Love Letters to Him! This is ministry, in a unique way!

Format: Hardcover
When I look at this gorgeous book I can't help but realize that God thinks of our prayers as works of art. In Love Letters To God Lynn Morrissey has opened her heart and her life so others can understand that we can gain deeper intimacy with written prayers. Lynn's lyrical writing, paired with Katia Andreeva's incredible art, has created more than a book. Some books on prayer have made me feel guilty. This book makes me feel envious and hopeful that I too can have the type of prayer life Lynn has achieved. Love Letters To God is an encouragement to all women to pick up the pen and write out of their pain and their joy because the Father will listen.

Format: Hardcover
Lynn Morrissey has a beautifully poetic way of writing, in a deeply personal manner with candor and humility that draws the reader into an intimacy with her, while revealing the kind of relationship we can all have with God, through faith in Jesus Christ. "Love Letters to God" evokes every tender emotion, bringing the reader to examine his or her own life, heart and prayer-life. Simply gorgeous to look at, inspiring to mediate upon and a book to be cherished always.

Format: Hardcover
After reading "Love Letter to God," I felt like I'd connected with God from the inside out. Lynn's profound way with words expresses her fears, hopes, and heart in such a way that I felt free to tunnel into my emotions by being open to what God wants to teach me. I learned from her vulnerability, which was expressed in such a poetic way. It reminded me of Michangelo creating his masterpieces--they were beautiful to behold.

Format: Hardcover
This gentle, beautiful book helps us catch glimpses of God in our written prayers. While inspiring us to write our prayers in a journal, Love Letters to God: Deeper Intimacy Through Written Prayer also instructs us in different types of prayers.
When I read Lynn's written prayers, I see possibilities for my own prayer journal. I, too, can list my worries to obtain objectivity. I, too, can name my grief, do emotional spring cleaning, and wrestle with God's perfect will. I, too, see that I've dulled my conscience with addictions and activities-and know the hope of God's grace of His forgiveness and freedom. Like Lynn, I, too, can choose between bitterness or blessings, from counting my blessings to become mature enough to want to become a blessing to others. I, too, can review old journals and catch God's purpose for my life. Seeing God's answers to Lynn's long-held prayers gives me hope that mine can be answered in God's good time.
Readers who already pen their prayers will be greatly encouraged to explore new possibilities for their prayer journals. Other readers-who have never written their prayers-will be gently encouraged to know the freedom and joy of journaling.

Format: Hardcover
Transparency, sincerity, sensitivity, insight, and vulnerability all packaged within an exquisite cover. This describes the book Love Letters to God by Lynn D. Morrissey. For anyone who desires to know God better or to consider written prayer as a way to communicate with Him, this book will assist in that quest.
In one prayer the author astutely writes, "...when we name our grief, we acknowledge it, embrace it, lance it before the unnamed pain grows, festers, and consumes us. Naming our grief is the first step toward healing." With beautiful imagery she continues, "Dipping my pen into my heart's inkwell of tears, I streamed lists of laments into my journal."
Sprinkled throughout with quotes and scriptures Love Letters to God is a consoling read. Soft impressionistic artwork makes this book inviting and one that would be an excellent Mother's Day or anytime gift.
-Brenda Nixon, speaker and author of Parenting Power in The Early Years

Format: Hardcover
This beautiful book goes right to your heart. The authors vulnerability and authenticity encourages others to open the deepest, darkest parts of their heart to the Lord. Only he can truly understand and heal the hurts long buried. Lynn shows how God will rejoice significantly at our insignificant accomplishments. She illustrates God's grace and love not only to her, but shows us how it is available to all of us if we simply allow God into our hearts. As children we kept journals. Lynn shows us the importance of journalizing at it's best - in prayer to our Creator.

Format: Hardcover
Few things in life thrill me like receiving a hand-written letter, penned just for me. Imagine writing letters to God. That is what author Lynn Morrissey has done for years and calls it the "romance of a lifetime." Morrissey's book, "Love Letters to God," is a very personal one. It's as if she spills a little of her soul onto the pages, in the hopes of helping another discover the intimacy of written prayer. Once you read this book, you will understand that God isn't "out there" somewhere; He is as close as your pen.
